Curator’s Talk
WILLIAM LESCH | A Continuous Trail

with Tohono Chul Director of Arts and Engagement, James Schaub.

Join us in the Exhibit House for a discussion about our new exhibition, WILLIAM LESCH | A CONTINUOUS TRAIL, in the Main Gallery.

For the past 45 years Tucson and William Lesch have grown together. It can be argued that there is no one around Tucson that knows, understands, and appreciates Tucson’s beauty better than Lesch. Calling Tucson home since the mid-seventies, the place has been a major factor in the development of Lesch’s distinctive aesthetic and skill set. An encyclopedic knowledge of photography – its history, science, techniques, and processes – pushes him through every trailblazing twist in turn he creates – on purpose or by accident.

Lesch is never idle, he is always moving, shifting gears, exploring new materials, ideas, techniques, equipment, technology, and subjects. Lesch is never simply ‘taking’ a picture – he is ‘MAKING’ an image, creating something that has an otherness to it in terms of concept and intent and an objectness to it in terms of its presence and physicality. A Continuous Trail explores Lesch’s career – where he’s been, where he is now, and where he’s going.
